Tamsin Greig stars in this revival at Hampstead Theatre
The Olivier nominated play, Peggy For You, has opened at the Hampstead Theatre. The world premiere was staged at the theatre in 1999 and is now having a revival at a time when comedy is much in need for all of us. Written by Alan Plater, Peggy For You is based on the playwright’s formidable agent, Peggy Ramsay, who dominated the theatre world for over thirty years. Peggy For You stars the Olivier award-winning Tamsin Greig as Ramsay who was the foremost agent from the 50s through to the 80s.
The comedy tells the tale of the characters who fell under the spell of Ramsay who was famously more concerned with art than money and is quoted as saying ‘if any of my clients are rich, it is entirely by accident.’ Richard Wilson returns to direct his sixth production at Hampstead Theatre. The cast includes Josh Finan, Trevor Fox, Danusia Samal and Jos Vantyler.
For those seeking an entertaining night out and a lot of laughter, Peggy For You is just the ticket.
Peggy For You runs at the Hampstead Theatre until 29 January.
